    ALOT has been going on where I work...check the news about ECMC in buffalo, box maybe going out a little later than deadline.....you will understand why
  6. I'm still around, its been a strange/busy week at work. Went beer shopping again last night, picked up another 118 ounces and a couple of glasses. I need to make at least one more beer run. No box from Western NY should be without Flower Power and for the first time ever the shelf was completely empty at the bottle shop. I'm hoping that just means they're getting fresh in for Rochester Beer Week starting tomorrow.

    Time to start thinking about how to pack all of this into boxes.

    And because we all need hints: My target's zipcode contains 2 prime numbers.

    Awesome box markasparov, I thought I was your target but I see I was wrong....hmmmm
  15. jjheinrichs

    jjheinrichs Savant (370) Wisconsin Apr 13, 2010

    Awesome box indeed, I'm well into the growler and I'm looking forward to getting into the many bombers - most of which were off my wants list - in the near future.

    Thanks again!
  16. My pleasure--glad you like it! The glass and local food will follow shortly, but I didn't want to sit on that growler--and yes, it is Gandhi Bot.

    will finish up the beer shopping today as I head out to a brewery for their most recents.
    still weighing up the food options but should be completed today as well as there's an awesome little artisanal grocery/country store right by said brewery.

    hint: my targets local weather for the weekend will be highs of 83-85 // lows of 60-64 and partly cloudy.

    bjohnston,
    forgot to tell you the Schlafly glass arrived the other day. very unusual... what style would this be considered?
    it's like a pint glass with a snifterish top.

    That's a pretty neat glass, never seen one like it before.
  23. Bjohnston

    Bjohnston Aficionado (145) Kentucky Dec 24, 2011

    I tried to get the snifter for you, but they were out. Thought this one was cool and unique so I got it instead. Got one for myself too.
  24. laxer8811

    laxer8811 Savant (340) New York Sep 13, 2006

    Very cool glass, never seen one before either, almost like the same Adams glass

    Two big boxes are all packed up and ready to head out tomorrow. Snagged some good local food items and filled the rest of the boxes with wants. Headed to a waterfront town.
  30. This is ready to go out tomorrow to a city that shares an interstate with Pennsylvania.

    duceswild Advocate (740) Maryland Feb 8, 2010

    Glad to see the box photos and the activity here picking up now that shipping day is less then a week away. I picked up one of my targets wants this evening.

    Will be shipping to someone who could be sending this as their food item. Perhaps you will be the lucky one?

    I am glad wings are a local food rather than that, what is it...Also speaking of wings my target will get food item before the boxes.....
  36. laxer8811

    laxer8811 Savant (340) New York Sep 13, 2006

    Apologies to my target -- I had a couple setbacks over the past two weeks, but things are good now, and I think I'm finally done shopping too. So far it's up to 330oz, about 90% wants. Just need to find a local food item that won't go bad sitting in a box for a week.

    Making a trip north to Jax this weekend and might see if there's something else I can include, and then the box(es) should be headed out by Monday to one of the few cities in the US with a Mediterranean climate.
